Call for energy saving products to be tested at Energy House

Businesses with an energy saving or low carbon product are invited to Salford University on 12 November to explore opportunities to test their product at the world-leading Energy House 2.0.


The new £16 million Energy House 2.0, which is approaching completion, aims to shape the homes of the future by allowing researchers and businesses to test energy performance inside two giant weather-controlled chambers.

The unique facility will be able to create snow, rain, wind and sun, as well as temperatures ranging from -20°C to 40°C, meaning environmental conditions experienced by 95 per cent of the world’s population will be able to be replicated.

Energy House 2.0 builds on the University of Salford’s original Energy House, which was built in 2011 and has helped a wide range of companies to test and develop their products.

The University has secured the commitment of four major developers to construct properties inside Energy House 2.0 from March 2022, as new testbeds for research and development. Researchers are now looking for companies in Greater Manchester that manufacture, supply or install low energy or low carbon technologies who would benefit from opportunities to test their product and receive technical input from world-leading academics.

Businesses that fit this description are being invited to a networking day at the University on 12 November for an introduction to the project and tour of the new facility, followed by opportunities to present their products and join the research and testing programme.

Interested companies are encouraged to find out more on the Energy House 2.0 website here.
